Domain Logon

By Borg7of9 ·
I am having some problems with domain logons, when I change the permissions. ( to install software fir example ) then I re-logon as that user, the changes dont take affect. Its as if the logon info is cached. Is there anyway to force the workstation to get logon info on the server?

And if this is not the case, any ideas? The server is Win2000

How many DCs have you got? If you're changing AD for group membership, etc, you will need to wait for (or force) Directory replication else you might be changing on one DC and referencing another one which hasn't picked up the changes. It can take several minutes to replicate!

the easiest way to tell if you are logging on with cached information or not is to go to a command prompt and type in "set log". that will show you what you authenticated to when you logged on, it will either show a DC or the local machine.

are you doing this through group membership or group policy?

Try using:
secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy /enforce.

Only have one server, that is DC active directory. I have not configured any group policies. Only 10 workstations connecting to server, so its pretty much an out of the box standard configeration.
